    Works with Quirks

    First, this is a brilliant solution to a vexing problem that many owners of older, "useless" cassette players have: how to stream tunes through your old radio. But the solution here has, thus far, not lived up to the promise. I have gone through two of these units and have sent both back for different reasons. Both units did connect quickly and easily to my iphone SE. But the first unit I purchased rattled so loudly in my car cassette player that I had to turn up the volume just to drown out the cassette noise. It also had an incessant electronic ticking noise coming from the speakers. I used the product in three different cassette players with the same result coming from each. The second unit I purchased didn't have the ticking noise, but it did rattle, though not as loudly as the first one. What annoyed me most with the second unit was the frequency response wasn't nearly as good as I had hoped for with a product using Bluetooth 4.0. The music seemed thin in the middle frequencies and very pitchy — like when you take your treble control and turn it up all the way. Bass was not impressive either. I tried it on 3 different cassette systems with the same result from each. I wish the company could have spent a few extra cents making the internal gears quieter. It doesn't matter so much if you're 10 ft. away from your stereo, but if you use it in your car with your head about 2 feet away, it's quite annoying. So I'll keep looking around for a different unit from another company. In the mean time, I hope Aluratek ups their quality control in any 2.0 version they may release. If they do, and I've not found anything suitable, I may consider returning to see if a new version will work any better.

    Doesn't work. Keeps ejecting.

    The audio quality was great, but unfortunately it does not take phone calls for speakers, I would not be able to use it for hands-free phone calls. The main problem is that, it doesn't work like any other cassette adapters I had. After using for one day, it keeps ejecting by itself after every 1-10 seconds. I had tried flipping to the other side and rewind and forward it to calibrate it or something and the problem still persists. I couldn't listen to music for more than 15 seconds before my cassette player starts ejecting it out anymore. Very un-reliable!

    Bluetooth Audio Streaming For My Car

    I'm very impressed with this item so far. I use it to stream my Pandora stations thru my car. It was very easy to pair with my iphone and no wires to have to deal with so its very clean. The music sounds much better than if if have my fm stations playing and I have more channels to choose from than I know what to do with. I like that I can tune it to my talk radio as well which I can no longer get on my FM since I moved. Seems like I need to charge it every few days which is not too bad.

    I used it for my dad's old car which has a playback Audio Cassette player and it works perfect when paired over Bluetooth.Moreover, there is no compromise in the quality of songs.
